Dell Rhea's Chicken Basket Highlighted on The Food Network

Dell Rhea's Chicken Basket, located on historic Route 66 in Willowbrook, IL, was highlighted on The Food Network's, "Diners Drive-Ins and Dives". The restaurant is known for its fried chicken, but check out how they create their Mac & Cheese dish (shown later in the video segment).

Here's a link to a video of the segment:

  1. That's great , it's been a few years since I was there but recall them having classic great food. Wish they were on my side of town.

    Old Route 66 had both Dell Rhea & White Fence Farm right as you began your journey on the mother road out of Chicago, some of the best food along that route too! From the time I did the whole route to the many dozens of times that I've driven major segments of it, I cant honestly say that I've had better chicken along that route.
